    /r/BabyElephantGifs is celebrating 10 years on Reddit. Here's a look back at some of my favorites.

    Hey everybody. This month marks 10 years since I started /r/babyelephantgifs after seeing the reception to a post I made over in /r/gifs. I know this subreddit isn't as active as it once was. The world has changed, reddit has changed, life has happened, and many of us have moved on.

    That said, /r/babyelephantgifs is still here (numbering 1.3 million strong!) and it turns out that baby elephants are still remarkably cute. Here's a look back at some of my favorite gifs from the last 10 years.
